A loan of $275 helped to buy food for pigs.

Marco Tulio's story

Marco Tulio, 58, is married, has a son and lives with his family in a village in the town of Choloma, Cortes.

Marco has always worked in agriculture and masonry. He is a very hardworking person. Two years ago, he started a business raising and selling pigs to generate a better income. He sells the pigs to intermediaries, which is very profitable.

He has kept the business going thanks to the financial aid facilitated by ODEF. He is currently applying for another loan of 5000 lempiras to purchase food for the pigs. This investment will help him sell at the best price for a better income. Marco's dream is to establish a more productive pig farm and to provide better living conditions for his family.
